Just a few hours ago, it appeared that Denver Nuggets free agent Andre Iguodala had every intention to sign with the Sacramento Kings who offered the former Arizona Wildcat a lofty four year, $56 million dollar deal.
Then, with a snap of a finger the proposed deal was snatched off the table by the Kings, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick who first reported the reversal.
Per USA Today’s Sam Amick:
The Kings have pulled their offer for free agent Andre Iguodala & will no longer pursue him, I’m told. Story to come.
Kings wanted answer that Iguodala wasn’t ready to give, so they pulled out and moved on. They’ll regroup & decide on Tyreke Evans etc.
Yahoo Sports tossed in their report as well:
Denver’s shown no inclination to match $14M per offer, and Iguodala wasn’t ready to tell the Kings ‘Yes,” sources tell Y! So, Kings bailed.
Sacramento Kings general manager Pete D’alessandro has suggested that the Kings plan to be heavy players in the trade market so it’s possible the Kings may have found another scenario which they’re more comfortable with or it’s possible they felt Iguodala was merely playing them in hopes of getting a bigger contract. Either way, it appears Iguodala to Sacramento is a dead idea.
